HTC followed the footsteps of Samsung by launching a cheaper version of its flagship device, one with a much lower bill of material thanks to mainstream components. So the HTC One made way for the HTC One Mini.
You can grab the HTC One's smaller sibling from £26 per month on preorder from Phones4U on Orange Panther plan with 200 minutes, unlimited text and 750MB data allowance. That's a total cost of ownership of £624 (the cost of the phone itself is around £380) and the phone is expected to be delivered by 9 August.
Alternatively, you can opt for a lower data allocation (500MB) on a faster network (EE) with unlimited minutes for an additional £70 (which is equivalent to under £3 per month). Phones4U offers £25 to spend on Google Play when you preorder on any networks except EE for which the bounty doubles to £50.
The HTC One Mini comes with a dual-core SoC clocked at 1.4GHz, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 400, BoomSound audio technology, a 4.3in display with a 1,280 x 720 pixel resolution, Gorilla Glass 3, HTC Zoe, an Ultrapixel camera, HTC Blinkfeed, a crafted metal body with tapered edges, three months free Wi-Fi, NFC, 1GB of RAM and 16GB onboard storage.
